Gil talks with Kenyon Papen, the eight year old boy who’s mother verbally scolds for buying a $50,000 car on Ebay as a prank, while videoing Kenyon’s reaction. Kenyon begins by crying, which evolves into laughter. His mother put the video up on Facebook and YouTube, which got some stern reaction from the public. Gil also talks with Kenyons mother, Paula, who assures that Kenyon is still a well adjusted child, even after the prank.
